Moloch child sacrifice is a topic that gets overlooked within the faith but it is a very real reality, which you will find out.

If we think about it? This must be still going on today, as sinister as that may sound. If the scriptures speak about it, it must be an issue in secret places especially…

In this article you’re going to find out what the modern day Moloch child sacrifice is, and how it has been disguised as responsible behaviour today.

First let’s look at the scriptures which speak about child sacrifice just to prove that it was, and is a reality…

Moloch Child Sacrifice Defined

We need to begin by looking at examples of child sacrifice in the bible. The bible speaks of two types of sacrifices:

  1. Physical child sacrifices

  2. Spiritual initiation sacrifices

First let’s start with a spiritual sacrifice, which is the dedication of a child to a false god as you will see from the following scriptures:

Leviticus 20:1-3

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

Here Moses is told that the children of Israel and the Gentiles, were not to dedicate their children to false gods, in this case Moloch.

The dedication here doesn’t appear to be a death of the child but an initiation into the worship of this false god Moloch. This is the act of dedicating a child spiritual to Moloch rather than to the Most High…

We see mention of passing children through the fire again in Ezekiel 20:25-26.

Now let’s look at the physical Moloch child sacrifice…

The following scriptures show clearly that Israel is engaged in wickedness against their children:

Isaiah 57:4-5

4 Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.
5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?

Above we are told that Israel are worshiping Idols and sacrificing their children physically to these false gods i.e. literally killing their children.

And again:

Jeremiah 19:5

5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:

Here it becomes even more graphic as we are told that Israel are burning their children in sacrifice to the false god baal.

Burning children seems to be the sacrifice of choice and looking at the scripture, there could be an argument that the passing through the fire was purely a sacrifice of children rather than a spiritual ritual. We see again mention of this in Jeremiah 7:31.

What we can clearly see here though is that children are being killed as dedications to false gods and also initiated to the same gods in the Tothepth the Valley of Hinnom, a place in the Middle east.

Moloch Worship Today

Molech is spelt “Molech” or “Moloch”…

Moloch is an Ammonite god. According to scriptures Solomon built a temple to the god of Moloch. 1 King 11:7.

First let’s define what Moloch worship was in ancient times.

From what we see in the scriptures Moloch is a false god that was worshipped at that time. Today though there’s no real openly known worship of Moloch, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything similar…

What we are told is that the Most High told Israel and the Gentiles not to allow their children to be dedicated to, or passed through the fire for Moloch.

Leviticus 20:2

2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

This indicates that Moloch had a significant role in the world of false Gods worship.

We also know that there were child sacrifices for this same false God. But how does this relate to modern day child deaths.

Modern Day Moloch Child Sacrifice

Today we live in a world where everybody seems to be squeamish, even though, ironic as it may sound, all the movies we see on TV are full of violence deaths and viruses?

Nobody seems to ask questions when the violence is depicted on TV.

That being said there is a modern day Moloch child sacrifice, but it appears that the spin doctors have explained it away as family planning…

So what am I talking about? Today we have what is called abortion and it has been advertised and promoted as as a woman’s right to choose.

Anybody with an ounce of sense knows that there’s so much wrong with this statement. Especially as the same woman chose to lay down with a man understanding the most possible outcome is to become pregnant.

Except in the case where a woman is raped obviously, which is obviously a most unfortunate situation…

…But does it mean a life should be aborted?

When we see things like this we have to remind ourselves of what Satan’s job and primary goal is. the Messiah himself makes this very apparent:

John 10:10

10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

And it is Satan that has given men (in this case a woman, as you will see shortly) the inspiration to abort babies.

At the point of conception nobody has the right to choose if a baby lives or dies, even If they were raped unfortunately.

Even the sperm that a man produce is supposed to be used for its intended purpose, so no condoms are not condoned either…

On of the major pioneers of abortions in modern times, if we retrace history, is a woman by the name of Margaret Sanger…

Who incidentally was a racist and a supporter of eugenics which is population control. Particularly the control of black people.

Margaret Sanger’s ideology alleged that if a woman has no choice but to give birth, it means that she is being denied her human rights.

This may sound sensible to less informed on the surface, but like I mentioned earlier what about the decision to have intercourse? And what about the child’s right to life from conception?

In the UK a pregnancy is not even considered a human being for the first 24 weeks, which is diabolical…

We also need to consider the reason for most abortions is to maintain some type of financial success in this world. This is where the term family planning comes.

Many people actually abort their children so that they can continue in their careers for the most part…

This in itself is the worship of money whether people care to believe that or not.

The Most High’s Opinion On Abortion

So what does the Most High think about the act of abortion?

We see in scripture a story where Onan the brother of Er was to give birth for his brother who was killed by the Most High for his wickedness (Genesis 38:7).

But decided to spill the sperm on the floor to prevent the pregnancy. This angered the Most High and he was killed immediately.

Genesis 38:9

9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.

Onan’s reason for spilling the sperm was because he didn’t want the child because in the customs of Israel if a man’s brother died unnaturally leaving a wife it was the duty of a living brother to marry his wife and bring forth an heir for them.

In this particular case Onan did not want to bring forth an heir for his brother because he knew the child would not be his own.

What we can take from this is that from the point of conception a child is seen as a life to be brought forth. If this was not so wouldn’t the Most High have warned Onan and give him another chance?

The same is true for any pregnancy it is not our places to abort (murder) a life that we cannot create.

Here’s some interesting scripture:

Proverbs 6:16-17

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

We need to be reminded of some of the things that the Most High hates and one of those things are hands that shed innocent Blood…

What could be more innocent then an unborn child?

Supporting this point further we see evidence that the Most High has formed us even before we have come into existence

Psalm 139:13-17

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

As you can see and read here in verse 16 specifically, David is giving praise to the Most High for forming him even before he existed. This tells us that the Most High has a plan for all of us, even before we’re born and we have no right to the life of an unborn child.

And again the same is reiterated with the prophet Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 1:5

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

The Most High tells Jeremiah that he formed him in his mother’s womb and ordained him a Prophet before he even entered the world.

This let’s us know when reading the scriptures that the Most High has such an intimate relationship with us, even while we’re in formation he’s laying out our whole life.

You should also understand that if you commit an abortion it’s not something that you can turn back from.

David demonstrate this point when he loses his child.

2 Samuel 12:19-24

19 But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead.
20 Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the Lord, and worshipped: then he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat.
21 Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread.
22 And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live?
23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
24 And David comforted Bathsheba his wife, and went in unto her, and lay with her: and she bare a son, and he called his name Solomon: and the Lord loved him.

Right after David loses his child he impregnates his wife Bethsheba and has Solomon. But what’s important is that he understood that it was the Most High who had the power to spare his child, because everything is in the hands of the Most High not his creation (us).

A Look At The God Moloch

When we read the scriptures we see a god described as a calf which Israel worshipped when Moses went up to speak to the Most High, of course this was in complete rebellion to the Most High’s commandments…

Exodus 32:8

8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

As you can see from the scripture the children of Israel created a golden calf to worship, much like the one you see in New York City, USA below:

gold calf image

There is no definitive piece of information tying Moloch the God to the calf, but we can assume a connection because of how much Moloch is mentioned throughout the scriptures.

The regularity that this god Moloch is mentioned couple with Israels worship of a Calf (Bull) there is a strong chance the Golden calf was Moloch.

Moloch Owl or Calf?

There appears to be some confusion about what Moloch looks like for some though, some say that Moloch was an Owl whereas there are those that say it’s the bull or calf. As you see from what we have presented her we suspect that he was a Calf.

Many historic images also appear to depict him that way too, as below:

Illustration Of An Offering To Molech

But we also looked into the notion that Moloch may have been an Owl and found some interesting information.

What we find is that when we look at the Egyptian phonetic alphabet the letter M is pronounced Mulak which can be represented as an Owl.

The letter also has a similar pronunciation to Moloch which is why I think there is confusion about Moloch being mistaken for the Owl.

History widely accepted that Moloch was a Calf god. We do find an Owl God but this was a god of the Greeks and Romans called Athena.

This would rule out this Greek god because the nation mentioned in the scriptures connected to this false god were Shemitic, more specifically the Ammonites according to scriptures (1 King 10:7).


So we know from the scriptures that Moloch was the god of the Ammonites and he was worshipped in Topheth the valley of Hinnom.

Hopefully this article has shed some light on the issue of abortion and Moloch child sacrifice. Neither are things believers should be partaking in, as we owe our existence to the Most High. We are not to sacrifice our children to false gods. This is inevitably what you are doing when you abort a child.

If a child is lost naturally through miscarraiage that is the will of the Most High, but we do not have the authority to decide on who lives or dies. Even if we have been taught and led to believe we do.

It’s our job to be righteous and we must take responsibility for the actions that we carry out. There’s no such thing as family planning because you don’t know if you are going to be able to have children in the future, especially after an abortion. Only the Most High knows that.

We must be like Josiah and put an end to child sacrifice and dedications to false gods.

2 Kings 23:10

10 And he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech.

And if you are sincere with yourself what if you do have a child after an abortion, could you with a clear concious tell your other children that you aborted their brother or sister? With that I will end this but before I go I must be clear Moloch child sacrifice is a no, no….

Shalom. And share this with somebody that needs it!
